At this point in time I just hope I have my install done, tuned the best I can, and presentable. Have all the gear and pieces here (famous last words) but ran so hard over the holidays I let my immune system tank on me. I think I'll be OK though time wise.

If any "Tuner" would be available to set some time aside to help me out that would make my year. Willing to pay a premium if the tune comes with some knowledge and tutorial.

There should be plenty of people to help you out. I'm always willing to lend a hand and I know the other guys are, too.

That would be awesome! I have much to learn, just feel awkward asking someone to spend a day off working on my system.

Best part of the meets, rather than just giving you a fish (tuning your car), you'll get great info to teach you to fish (to be able to do your own satisfactory tuning). If you soak up as much knowledge as you can from a lot of these folks, you'll be exhausted by days end from all the learning.

I always feel small when I go to the meets, my system isn't on par with most but I have never walked away with out knowing more than I did. I really enjoyed the last two meets I went to and I am grateful for the knowledge I have acquired from the folks here.

Well, you wouldn't be confused as a basketball player But you have certainly hit on the reason for the meets.....ain't about who has the best or about an exclusive club of guys and gals who stand around and brag about how good the group's systems are.....it is about sharing the joy of the hobby, learning, and enjoying the folks involved!

Very true, no one bragged about their systems. And everyone had good advice for me. Much of which I have implemented. I just removed both amps and both DSP's, They were under the front seats and I just didn't like the "way it looked". Also noted some intermittent distortion that I could not put my finger on for a while. would happen after about an hour of driving, Turns out I forgot about the heat ducts that blow under the seats. I had never had a Class D get so hot! So everything is going in the trunk now. UGH!

Agreed. I always enjoy shooting the breeze with my buddies and get the most enjoyment out of helping people out at these meets. Even when I don't have a system I feel is firing on all cylinders, I still go to these meets. It's less about the showing off ... not that showing off your hard work is a bad thing... but it's more about the camaraderie, IMHO. I like seeing others' installs, listening to their systems, helping out where I can, and generally just shooting the breeze with my buds.

Rear fill is really one of those things you like or don't. And it's pretty simple to set up. It can be complicated if you want to make it that way but it definitely doesn't need to be. We can chat at the meet, though, like you said.

Hello all!

Please take a look at the first post in this thread. Erin has graciously made an edit to it providing some updates that you will need to see.

I've decided to have the meet at a local park instead of my house. Please see the info there and pop any questions that you have in this thread.

This is a very nice park, and the shelter / location that I have reserved is excellent - rain or shine....it should be an excellent venue. I paid the $100 fee, so if we could pass the jar around at the meet....a few dollars each if you want to give will cover it.

Another nice thing about the venue - there is a killer playground about 200 meters from our shelter, a volleyball net and a fishing pond right next to the shelter. We will have power and bathrooms......and there are hiking trails throughout the park.

So I'm encouraging families to come because there will be a lot of fun things to do (unlike my house).

There has been a lot of discussion about amplifiers on DIYMA recently, and a lot of our folks have been changing out equipment - and finally getting their installs done......so I'm already getting excited about this meet!

In the distance you can see the pool area where the playground is located.

Looks very nice! I have a suggestion......since several have offered up their help to me I will spring for the fee. It's the least I can do! And I do not expect anyone to to feel obligated to spend an exorbitant amount of time helping me out.

I could also use some help getting my friend motivated to get back into the scene, I gave him my Alpine CDA 9887 W/Imprint processor, some 4" components and some other leftovers. After hearing ya'lls gear I'm sure he will be bitten.

Jason- Does the shelter reservation come with power? If so, I'd be willing to dedicate a few hours to offer some tuning assistance to whoever needs help while I'm there. I could bring the rig down...(?)

Locomotive Tech- I'm much more local to you than NC. We can hook up there so I can see what you're working with and there will be plenty of us there to offer some suggestions and share what we know about installation/tuning to help you on your way. If tuning is something your just not comfortable with, you can always bring your car up to my place some time to get a tune on it.

I could also use some help getting my friend motivated to get back into the scene, I gave him my Alpine CDA 9887 W/Imprint processor, some 4" components and some other leftovers. After hearing ya'lls gear I'm sure he will be bitten.
That is a fantastic gesture Frank, and it is much appreciated! Several in the crowd will lend an ear to get your car squared away. If it turns out that you get over to Captain's sometime before the meet.....we can still do a little collection jar

Locomotive Tech- I'm much more local to you than NC. We can hook up there so I can see what you're working with and there will be plenty of us there to offer some suggestions and share what we know about installation/tuning to help you on your way. If tuning is something your just not comfortable with, you can always bring your car up to my place some time to get a tune on it.


-Steve
The reservation does come with power.....there is an outlet on the wall.......we will have to do the distribution outlet thing to provide enough extensions

Is the fishing pond public or private? I know in Arkansas you don't need a fishing license to fish a private impoundment. Not sure about NC. Gonna be hard for me not to bring a rod and sneak in a few casts before everyone starts rolling inI probably won't bring one though. I might need some help tuning too. Measurement equipment has made things a lot easier for me but a fresh set of ears never hurts. My main issues are with phasing.

The park looks good and completely understandable why you needed to move there. Already looking forward to this meet, hoping to get my subwoofer enclosure sorted and some other changes before April.

Debating getting a hotel overnight, but my wife works Friday night and Sunday. So if I got a hotel it would have to be the Saturday night and I would need to check out at 5am or earlier Sunday to make it home before she has to leave for work. So, I may just make the drive down Saturday morning and home again in the afternoon

A tablet, a DSP, some amps, speakers and a suitcase

I'll be driving in Friday and coming home Sunday regardless. 12+ hour drive each way but always worth it. At least my new whip gets 25mpg at 75mph instead of 18-19. Lot more comfortable too

Off Topic.....PM me if you have good, but inexpensive amps for sale.....looking for something for my battle buddy's son's first system.

Alpine / JL 5 channel would be great...a couple 4 channels would also work.

A little bit of an update.

I texted our local amplifier supplier, Russell (Russell's Warehouse ), and he had some very good options that I ran by Isaiah. I'm going to be sending him a set of mid bass drivers and 3" drivers to use in the install. My friend Chris (Mr. Hillbilly SQ himself) then PM'd me to say he had a subwoofer to donate for the cause.

That made me think that it could be interesting to tell the story

My buddy Andrew Lilje was my sniper partner at the unit I went to after I returned from Afghanistan. He was a police officer in Elizabeth City, NC and in the VA National Guard. We really wanted the opportunity to deploy together, but I got out when that unit deployed to Iraq.

While in Iraq, he had a serious back injury, and he was flown to Germany. While there, he had two Neurosurgeons tell him he needed a certain type of surgery to remove the disc, etc. He got back to the States, and the VA system 'prescribed' pain meds and physical therapy. He refused the pain meds and struggled through the therapy. One of the stories he told me - he was doing an assembly at the local middle school (meet a local vet), and when he was leaving the stage, his left leg completely let go due to nerve damage, and he fell on his face in front of the entire auditorium of kids.

Anyway, he would do something around the house......the disc would blow up.....he wouldn't be able to walk......he would schedule an MRI.....by the time he would get one......the disc would go back down. This pattern repeated for 2 years. Finally he was out of the military and his Dad was able to get him surgery with a civilian doctor he knew. His Dad's friend did the exact surgery that the guys in Germany said he needed to get (go through the front, pull out the disc, put in a cage, close everything up )

Some side affects of all of this.......he lost his job as a police officer and he lost his job as a National Guard soldier........he did go back and get his Bachelor's degree in Business and Emergency Management (wanted to build a shooting range).......and he got to spend a ton of time with his son and two daughters - who were in middle school when he went to Iraq - now they are in High School).

They are about the best young adults that I have been around - absolutely amazing young people. I believe that all the time they spent with their Dad had a huge impact on what they are like as kids. Andrew is looking to go get his Master's degree and is hoping to get better opportunities moving forward.

That was long winded, but I wanted to just let you guys know who this was about
